This week, the Virginia REALTORS®’s legal team examines antitrust issues in the real estate industry. Cate and Laura review applicable antitrust laws and their penalties. They also discuss the reasons why the real estate industry is particularly susceptible to to antitrust violations. They answer some legal hotline questions, such as “I’m worried that I am not charging my clients enough of a percentage. How can I figure out the right amount to charge them without discussing it with agents from other firms?” Finally, Cate and Laura discuss some ways to help limit your risk when faced with situations that may invite antitrust violations.
